. it is important to express our deep and sincere sympathy -- >> reporter: you can see here at lax, paul ciancia open fire at the bottom of the stairs where flowers are where the tsa agent fell. he went up the escalator and turned around because he saw he was moving and fired again according to officials. but the 23-year-old accomplished two of his goals when he came here to lax, not the suicide mission part but did want to kill a transportation security administration officer and also to show how easy it is to get a gun into the airport. and this could very well lead to changes in how airport security is run as we heard from eric holder earlier this morning. again, ciancia was shot four times, at least once in the mouth. he's sedated under heavy guard and still in critical condition. we do know he was unemployed motorcycle mechanic who just recently moved to los angeles from a small town, a blue collar town of pensville, new jersey. although he was dropped off here at lax by a roommate, we are told he most likely operated alone, that the roommate who dropped him off curbside at the door behind

going investigation. they are looking through his computers now, paul ciancia to see what it is that got him attracted to this rhetoric in his handwriting letter from the radical right. anti-government reviews, federal reserve, sovereign citizen type stuff, referring to tsa saying if tsa is going to treat average americans like potential terrorists, it's a self-fill filling prophecy. what drove him to that, it's impossible at this point. secondly he's not talking. his medical condition is critical. he's wounded in the face and head. there's some question if this is brain injury that will complicate their ability to talk to him. >> pete williams, thank you for that update. >> you bet. >> a lot of travelers still reeling from that. we will be right back.
